Climate change will make some places uninhabitable!
Climate change will make some places on Earth uninhabitable within the next 30-50 years. This theory is supported by a NASA study that underlined the dangers for humans from a rise of average temperatures. If the phenomenon will continue, some places on our planet will reach climatic conditions that are incompatible with human life. Heat […]Continue reading
